Debian Network Install cannot get it to recognize my NIC
I am trying to install Debian from a CD with the Network Install. The problem is that it won't detect my network card. I have a built-in Broadcom BCM5704C. The appropriate driver is in the list of drivers that it gives me "tg3: Broadcom Tigon3 Gigabit Ethernet." When I select it it tells me that the module failed to load but that it may need parameters (eg. "irq=7 io=0x220").
I'm confident it's the correct driver (from http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethe...rivers.php#tg3 it's at the bottom).
I've tried to find where I can determine what IRQ and I/O to give it so it works, but I can't.
Any help or pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.
note. I'm a Linux newb, only experience with basic shell stuff relating to file transfer and web development. I want to run Linux on my desktop, hope this doesn't stop me.
